A port of soup can now pay part of a tenants House rent it seems.

A landlord in Cameroon got tired of disturbing a tenant who has been owing house rent and he decided to take his pot of chicken soup.

The  other tenants in the building backed the landlord's action saying that he had been compassionate with the tenant who had been owing him for 6 months.

Despite the pleadings he received from other residents of the area to return the pot of soup, he refused.

According to Cameroon-Concord, the incident took place at Bassa neighborhood in Douala, Cameroon.

The landlord was quoted as saying that "this man has money to prepare chicken but does not have money to pay for his rents. He has not paid his rents for the past six months.

"Each time I ask him to leave my house, he quotes some articles of the Penal Code indicating that I might get into serious trouble with the forces of law and order if I kick him out within two months without notice".
